About

The Future of Food and Nutrition Graduate Student Research Conference, hosted annually by the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, provides a unique venue for graduate students to present original research related to food and nutrition. Historically, more than 200 attendees from over 50 different institutions have come together each year to hear students present research from diverse fields ranging from food anthropology to nutritional epidemiology.

As a presenter or attendee, you will gain valuable professional experience discussing novel, multidisciplinary research. The conference also provides a great opportunity for networking with fellow students and future colleagues – the next generations of leaders in the field.
